Czechoslovakia: Transport Over Prague, 1946-47

This is an excellent engraved design. The 4 engine transport departs Prague with mail and passengers destined for New York City.

While the image takes some liberties, the plane at such a low altitude, it shows the best: a powerful transport aircraft over a a scene from the Czech capital of Prague. The bridge is the Chares Bridge.

As an aside, the 24 Kcs stamp has been cancelled in New York. Perhaps the air letter arrived uncancelled from Czechoslovakia?
